Mine Space Over Coffee, Episode 2 – Adaptability
This week, we’re talking about Adaptability: what it is, where it came from, and how it affects us.
A few things we talk about in Episode 2:
People must adapt to be happy
Rejecting current circumstances hinders adaptability
The Appalachian Trail: Why do it, what it’s like, how hard it is adapting to “life as we know it” when the adventure is over
What to do when we feel stuck in our lives
Favorite guest quotes:
“They say, survival of the fittest… To me, it’s really more survival of the flexible.”
“When we go through something cookie cutter, and we know what the results are going to be, and there’s no fear in that, there’s no surprise, there’s no overcoming… But when you go into something with a high factor of “unknowability’ and there’s fear involved, that takes courage… not knowing what is going to happen and then getting out of that, that builds something special in us.”
